Publications Committee

Four members of the Publications Committee representing different institutions are elected by the AAI membership, and four members of the committee are appointed by Council. Members serve staggered four-year terms. The chair is a non-voting member of Council and an ex officio member of the Finance Committee. The role of the committee is to:

  • be responsible for management and evaluation of The Journal of Immunology, ImmunoHorizons, and any other official publications of AAI, subject to the general supervision of Council
  • review the budgets of The Journal of Immunology and ImmunoHorizons.


The Publications Committee works to maintain the high quality of AAI journals as a trusted source of research findings that support and enhance advances in the field. The committee accomplishes this by:
  • recommending Editors-in-Chief to Council for appointment
  • approval of Editor-in-Chief recommendations for Editorial Board appointments
  • oversight of the Editor-in-Chief
  • consideration of proposed changes and improvements to the journals.
